2020 IGNITE! Catholic Matters

The mission of St. Francis of Assisi Senior High Youth Ministry is to guide teens in their search for fulfillment in Jesus Christ and form them as life-long missionary disciples through community, sacrament, scripture and prayer.


What is “CATHOLIC Matters”

CATHOLIC MATTERS is the catechetical or teaching component of our Senior High Youth Ministry. It is geared toward high school teens and their families. This component to the ministry is separate from the Discipleship Cells, which focus on developing relationships on the path toward missionary discipleship.

CATHOLIC MATTERS will offer opportunities for our high school students and their families to dive deeper into current topics and issues in light of our Catholic faith, Catholic Church teaching and our own lived experiences as a way to become more informed and to grow as the missionary disciples that God calls us to be.

We will explore topics such as racism, Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ+, Science and Religion, Mary and the Saints and many more. Several of these topics will be offered in a mini-series format.

Check back soon as we are still developing this program.
